We go on a magical sacred journey together, to learn the deep power, magic, ethics and truth of the four sacred Elemental weapons of the Tuatha De Danann: The Sword, the Spear, The Stone and the Cauldron.
This is a journey of great healing and empowerment, a journey of vision and sacredness.
Before the Tuatha De Danann came back to Ireland to seek to reclaim their homeland here, they travelled the seas for many years and learned from great spiritual teachers all along the Atlantic seaboard and the Mediterranean too. The histories recall that they outstripped their teachers, and one of their great magical and spiritual achievements was vast understanding and healing and empowerment: their gaining the use of the four spiritual weapons.
The first module is vision work to see the arrival of the four sacred weapons here in Ireland at the return of the Tuatha in the Iron Age.
To see their four wonderful Divine guardians.
To see and experience the lines of power from the four weapons being brought to the beach here in Ireland, back to the Elemental Temple or ‘celestial city’ where the divine essence of each weapon resides, along with it’s magus, or spiritual master.
As each weapon is born to the shore, face it, receive it, and note its gift and revelations to you. Note strengths and weaknesses you have in the way you wield each element, and work how to heal and empower around each.
These four sacred weapons came to Ireland with the arrival of the Tuatha De Danaan in the Iron Age, maybe 500 BC.
However, it has to be noted that our source of knowledge about the four sacred weapons is a medieval manuscript. But as with all the Irish manuscripts, it must be remembered that they were written by Irish Catholic monks (or more usually: Norman Catholic monks), albeit at the request and sponsorship of noble patrons, who sometimes loved the ancient Irish tradition. But, indeed, the monks either failed to represent the power and inspiration of magic, or they vulgarised the ancient Gods, and even mocked them, or consigned them to Damnation.
The Irish would be indeed surprised to know the truth that the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169, was actually encouraged and authorised by the Pope: Pope Adrian IV. He wanted to impose his Gregorian Church organisation, and tie it to the Roman Empire tradition, now Norman tradition, of the local lord having the gift of tenure to the priests of parishes locally, with efficient tithes collection, and noble younger sons getting positions as priests! The monks who wrote the medieval manuscripts often either failed to represent the power and inspiration of magic, or they vulgarised the ancient Gods, and even mocked them or consigned them to Damnation.
So, this course reopens connection to the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan. As the course unfolds, you must visit each of the four Cities as you work through the course to receive YOUR OWN INDIVIDUAL CONENCTION AND GIFT.
